Squash Casserole....yummmm!


I love squash casserole! I've actually never made it but have had it before. I had some squash in the freezer and decided to make it tonight for dinner. We're still living out of the pantry, turns out I won't get to go grocery shopping until Saturday or maybe Sunday.

This recipe turned out absolutely yummy! I will definitely make it again!

Squash Casserole
2 1/2 pounds of yellow squash, sliced
1/2 stick of butter plus 2 tablespoons
1 small onion, diced
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
about 3/4 of a sleeve of buttery crackers (I used the generic ritz kind), crushed

Cook squash, covered, in a small amount of water. Cook until tender, then drain well. I used a colander to drain them and then pressed on them with some paper towels to get as much water out as I could.

Return squash to the pot. Combine with 1/2 stick of butter and mash well. Add onion, eggs, mayo, sugar, salt and cheese.

Pour into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Mine measured 2 quarts so I'm sure any similar dish will do.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave. Add crushed crackers and stir well. Sprinkle on top of squash mixture.

Bake at 325 for 30-45 minutes.

So tonight we had baked chicken breasts, squash casserole, buttered noodles and brussel sprouts. And yes, Rocket boy and Princess LOVE brussel sprouts. All Monkey ate were the noodles and a little bit of chicken. I made sure to give him a little of each thing on the plate though. Hopefully he'll eat more veggies eventually. *sigh*

Tomorrow we are off for an appointment for Monkey with the Urologist in Nashville. He had surgery on his kidneys in May. So far everything seems to be working well so hopefully his appointment will go well.

Have a great day!
God bless,
Amanda

Mmmm. This looks delicious. I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

I hope my kiddo likes the vegetables her dad does not eat, so I can serve them and be the majority! I love squash and brussel sprouts, but he won't touch them.

Sounds like a wonderful dinner! I have a bag of squash I need to cook up soon. It's good to find another bit of squash inspiration!

Oh goodness gracious, I love these casseroles. We always begged my mother to make it for the holidays. It's good to hook with another Tennessean - what part of the state do you call home?
